Advanced Diploma in Printing and Graphic Arts

I've been an international student at Kangan Institute since February this year, studying my Advanced Diploma of Printing and Graphic Arts.
I first found out about the Institute through a friend of mine who is studying an automotive course at the Automotive Centre of Excellence.

I have enjoyed my English course so far as I have made friends with my classmates and my teacher is very helpful with my study.
I have found my course to be very useful for my English and have improved many of my English skills; I find writing the most interesting part of the class.

I am doing a 20-week English course in preparation to be eligible to study a Diploma of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering.
My teacher is very good, he is very passionate about teaching and I have enjoyed making friends in my class.
Diploma of Automotive Technology
- Feng Pan, China
Kangan Institute is of good reputation here in Australia, with many different student facilities such as computers and the library, also providing a wide range of different courses - my favourite, of course, was automotive technology.
I enjoyed my study because I gained a lot of skills and practice in the field of automotive technology. The teachers provide you with knowledge that you can use in practice at the school and at the workplace.
- Hatice Onur, Turkey
I came to Kangan Institute to do English because I was recommended by my brothers to come study here.
One thing I have liked most about my studies is the friends I have made and I also find learning about English grammar enjoyable.
- Hiroko, Japan
My name is Hiroko and I started my studies in 2007. In preparation for my study in fashion I studied English at Kangan Institute
I am now in my final semester of three years of study in fashion at Kangan Institute and I still remember the short time I spent studying at the English Language Centre. I made so many friends and it really helped me adjust to being in Australia and getting ready for starting my main course.
Advanced Diploma of Hospitality Management
- Jiaxin Zhang, China
My agent recommended Kangan Institute to me. He said the Institute offered courses that would provide me with the skills and experience to work in my preferred industry. One of the things I enjoyed most about my studies was the kitchen practice and preparing meals.
The course was also helpful as it showed us the importance of teamwork which helped us learn better, doing group activities. It also included practical work we could 'learn by doing'.
Diploma of Nursing
- Jojie Mungcal
Jojie Mungcal is an international student who studied the Diploma of Nursing with us.
That's when I made up my mind to do the Diploma of Nursing at Kangan Institute, as it has a great reputation in the nursing community and high teaching standards that equip students with indispensable skills and knowledge needed in nursing.
Advanced Diploma in Hospitality Management
- Malin Subodha Hettiatachchi, Sri Lanka
I did my Advanced Diploma in Hospitality Management at Kangan Institute to gain the skills to start my own business. I hope to make my own website about the hospitality industry, offering information on Australian restaurants and hotels.
I enjoyed the management part of the course the most, which included the business plan. I will be able to take what I have learnt in to the future to help me develop my own website. The course was also good because I learnt a variety of things, not just cooking. We learnt the basic framework of the legal part of things too which was very interesting.
- Mayer Louka, Egypt
My name is Mayer Louka and I am an international student currently studying at Kangan Institute. My agent had advised me of the institute as I have family that live in the nearby area (Broadmeadows) that I am staying with during my studies.
My mainstream course is hospitality and before this I studied English for 10 weeks.
Advanced Diploma of Computer
- Muhammad Mubashir Hasan, Pakistan
If you are looking for industry-related studies in a top ranking Victorian institute with the freedom of a college environment, fun activities and one of the best teaching staff then I would definitely recommend Kangan Institute.
The variety of options available to learn about your subjects was very useful. All the studies are very well linked with practical work carried out in a practical world. There is plenty of resource material available in the library for every subject, like teacher lectures, notes and online WebCT, which helped out a lot.
- Vikki Zhang, China
Before starting my Diploma in Automotive Technology I studied English for five weeks at Kangan Institute.
I was very nervous when I arrived in Australia and everything was new. By studying English I made new friends (I still have these friends now!), learnt about Melbourne and also improved my English. I developed a better understanding of the Institute and what it is like in Australia before I had to concentrate on my main course.
Advanced Diploma in Accounting
- Viraj Indika Gunathilake, Indi
I had some friends already studying at Kangan Institute who said I should come do my course here. They said they enjoyed coming here and that it was really good for international students.
I learnt a lot in my course and made use of the library often. I still visit the campus and borrow books. The staff and teachers were very helpful and always made sure I was making the most of my studies. My teacher was always available to help us out and would check over work to make sure we understood the material.
Advanced Diploma of Hospitality (Commercial Cookery)
- Wei Lin, China
Study at Kangan Institute to further my ability to get a job. I wanted to learn skills relevant to the industry that I aimed to get in. I researched the internet and Kangan Institute was recommended as a good provider on the Chinese Government website.
The thing I enjoyed most about my studies was working in the kitchen and making food. It was also great to meet new people and make new friends. The chef was a great teacher and he knew how to teach us.
Advanced Diploma of Hospitality
- Yangchen Dolma Wangyal, India
I was referred by my agent from home to come study at Kangan Institute. I now see why, with the facilities that we had. I absolutely loved the library and librarians. Having such a facility at the campus made it so much easier to complete assignments and home work which I could do at the campus itself.
I could not have asked for better teachers. They took into consideration that we were from different countries and different backgrounds and made us feel comfortable. They also understood the differences in our beliefs and mannerisms from the culture here in Australia. The teachers were more like friends and also were a great help for references while helping us to get jobs as well.
- Yun Yang, China
I came to study at Kangan Institute to do English so I could then move on to do an Advanced Diploma in Commercial Cookery.
Once my course has finished I would like to do further study, perhaps at a local university.
Advanced Diploma of Hospitality (Commercial Cookery)
- Zhuo Ping Bo, China
My first year doing this course was my first ever time in the kitchen. I have learnt so much about teamwork and how to communicate with other people. By cooking, I have also learnt about the culture here in Australia.
Kangan Institute was recommended to me by my agent in China and seems to be highly regarded as it has won awards in 2007 and 2008. It is also a different experience compared to a private school as I have had more hands-on practice.
